Dermal Fillers

Immediate smoothing of  facial lines, softly and gently. Getting older is a fact of life. Some people age better while some are lucky enough to look younger.

The younger you look the better you feel about yourself. As you get older the characteristics of your skin changes, age, hormones, sun exposure and smoking all have a part to play causing fine lines and wrinkles. Skin becomes more fragile and less elastic.  The Hyaluronic Acid (HA) content of skin – which is important in water retention – decreases, so skin looks less plump and smooth and it also, loses its youthful colour and glow. Gravity also plays a part pulling at the skin causing it to sag. Dermal Fillers have become increasingly popular a a non-surgical technique to combat the signs of ageing.

What are possible side effects of soft tissue fillers?
Most side effects are mild or moderate in nature, and their duration is short lasting (7 days or less). The most common side effects include, but are not limited to, temporary injection-site reactions such as: redness, pain/tenderness, firmness, swelling, lumps/bumps, bruising, itching, and discouloration. As with all skin-injection procedures, there is a risk of infection.

Vascular occlusion, although very rare, is a very real complications of dermal fillers.  The vascular occlusion can lead to tissue necrosis and infection of a certain area of the skin.  Blindness due to vascular occlusion of a vessel that supplies the eye, which is mostly irreversible is the most serious complication. It is essential that you select a qualified medical doctor with advanced training in not only aesthetic procedures, but one that has advanced training in handling potential complications. Absolutely essential that dermal fillers be administered in a registered medical practice that is set up to handle emergencies.
